Another national tragedy – this time a congregation in South Carolina – another feeble attempt by a juvenile President to blame guns rather than the callous maliciousness of a twisted individual. I’ve said it once…I’ll say it a million times: if someone truly wants to harm others the means is but a formality for they will find a way to unleash their wrath. Unsuspected orderlies have murdered dozens of nursing home patients with the common simplicity of a needle, while two men slaughtered and injured hundreds with more than 5000 pounds of ammonium nitrate – fertilizer – and a rental truck: the single, greatest, domestic terrorist attack in American history. Human nature, that which cannot be legislated or pigeonholed, is the culprit behind the most innocuous, everyday slights to the most infamous mass murders. If Chicago is the preferred paradigm of strict gun control regulations, then liberal ineptitude is the official murder capital of America.
Any mass shooting, let alone a single murder, is without a doubt a grotesque reminder of the evil that lurks in our communities. However, as much as I unconditionally grieve for the victims and their families, I refuse to blame an inanimate object rather than the actual lawbreaker. Liberals live to shamelessly politicize such tragedies – immediately blaming the NRA or Tea Party – hoping our Second Amendment rights will be ripped away by an inescapable vacuum of mass hysteria and mob justice. The same Constitutional terrorists who can’t keep gangs off the streets, or drug dealers out of our schools, would leave “We the People” at the mercy of thugs and lowlife opportunists, not to mention vulnerable to government tyranny; Thomas Jefferson’s most profound reason for preserving our right to bear arms. Disarming the populace is the final lynch pin in securing uncontested subjugation.
Contrary to leftist fodder, defending gun rights isn’t about big trophy hunting or drunken rednecks shooting at watermelons. Its necessity is born from one immutable truth: human beings still die from the same proverbial hands of oppression, hate, as they did in 1776. The real tragedy in this endless debate is that the media never reports how often firearms save lives, foil crimes, and safeguard freedom around the globe. As much as the left lives to politicize death, they are remarkably oblivious to the true source of mass violence in America: the rapid moral decay of our society, lack of respect for our fellow man, and the endless mockery of our Judeo-Christian values by pop culture. Until our attitudes change, the results will not. And just in case you wanted an arbitrary statistic on firearms, over 80 million gun owners did not commit a crime last night. You do the math.
In this New World Order where logic is as impressionable as Silly Putty, I’m still waiting for the MSM to report Global Warming shares a high degree of culpability in gun violence. Oh wait, they already have! This is how utterly ridiculous and irreconcilable American politics has become. These insufferable hacks would have you believing pens misspell words and that alcohol drives unsuspecting liberals named Ted Kennedy off bridges if it meant preserving their backwards, victimization platform. It’s not about the truth, the heartbreak, or the victims; it’s only about how sensationalism can be spun into a perceived gain for a political agenda. Regardless of any perpetrator’s political affiliations or beliefs, I would simply chalk it up as a horrendous crime committed by a disturbed individual. There are 8,000 homicides committed annually by blacks against blacks. Yes, the deaths in South Carolina are a despicable tragedy, absolutely, but the former claims nearly 1000 times more victims. Where’s the collective outrage and the immediate call for action? It is highly irresponsible to blame guns, the Second Amendment, a race or any political party for the indiscretions of the few. Individuals are accountable, not politically convenient stereotypes.
Despite swearing an oath to defend our Constitutional liberties, countless Democrats, and even some Republicans, freely admit they would outlaw firearms in a heartbeat if given the opportunity. My response? Until the day comes you can guarantee every single criminal is stripped of every possible conceivable weapon, that our government will never abuse its power and usurp our freedoms, that you can prove no one uses a rifle to provide food for their family, or you find the necessary votes to amend the Constitution of the United States, don’t waste my time! And even if by some miracle those improbable events do converge, my answer is still, “Hell No!” Because human nature will never change – the vain, political and criminal aspirations of mankind – neither will the need for the Second Amendment. My God given rights, my right to self-preservation, do not require your validation or permission. Besides, your pen would probably just misspell my name. There’s no asterisk in freedom.
Pray for the victims in South Carolina – those we should be honoring instead of debating the tactless ploys of shameless opportunists – and pray over 300 million Americans are not the future victims of progressive stupidity.
